1. What is the first step you take when you see a team’s name and mascot?
My mind starts working at that time. I’m definitely inspired by the colors, logos and mascot. I do more research about the team: If it’s a boys or girls team or both, their ages, where they live. I look for the team’s colors and I start building an image of what I think they would like to have on a suit.
2. If you could describe your personal style in 3 words, what would you say?
Fun, sophisticated, modern.
3. What was your journey to becoming a designer?
I studied textile design in Mexico city at Universidad Iberoamericana and I did one year abroad in Milan
4. Tell us about what you learned studying abroad in Milan and how it influences your design!
Well it really changed the way I looked and thought about design. Italy is all about design, it was very challenging since I met very talented people, so that made me push ever harder but the way they see design and fashion made me love it even more.
5. If you had a swim team, what would you mascot be?
6. What are some design trends that you’re excited about right now?
It’s always exciting to see new technologies on fabrics, new textiles and better and easier ways to print on them.
7. What do you do when you’re stuck on a design?
I need to take a break when something is not taking the direction I want or I simply don’t find it. I do something else and after a few hours I go back to where I was or I start all over again.
8. How did you know you wanted to become a designer?
I’ve always loved drawing and creating things with my hands. I wanted to be a graphic designer first, then an industrial designer, and I ended up studying textile design which involves more than just creating a 2D design. I was finally able to make those drawings come alive!
